Northwest Invasion II - 1,675-point Mid-war tournament on October 26th, 2013 at Guardian Games

On October 26th 2013, players from all over the northwest will be descending on Portland, OR for a club challenge across state lines! Local players will be defending their territory against all comers. Pairings will be done by team, so you get a chance to play folks you don't normally play...and you won't have to play the folks you rode with.

Not a competitive player? No problem...this is an event for the fun of it. Prizes will be done by raffle, so everybody has a shot at the loot! Every player gets one entry into the prize drawings, with bonus entries for Best Overall, Tourney Aces (best score per team), Best Painted, and Best Sportsman.

An event trophy is given to the highest-scoring team to keep until the next Invasion.  For now, it resides in Portland.  Next time...who knows.

Wargame Airbrushing 01: multi-purpose rigs

To get an airbrush rig on the table top, I got to combine two of the great things in life... modelling, and home improvement stores.  For this particular build, I had a few criteria:  keep it multi-purpose, portable, and suitable to long painting sessions (my preferences), and keep it quiet (my wife's preference).

This particular setup has a few bells and whistles that are not required for basic airbrushing...I will make note of those optional components when they come up.  The order I list them is the order I connect them in the final rig.

Tank Spank 1 - September 21st, 2013 at PLU

Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA is hosting a Gamerati Game Day September 21st, 2013. 

From noon to 5pm, I will be running Tank Spank 1...the trial run of a Late War all-tank Flames of War event.  Tank Spank uses most of the Tank Aces campaign rules (as presented in Blood, Guts and Glory) with a few exceptions listed below.

There will be demos and pick-up games for Flames and other systems going on from 10am until midnight; card games upstairs, miniatures downstairs, not sure about the board games and traditional games...but they will be in the building!
